Dr. SeUsS FuN
It wasn’t the books that came across this way, but the movies. The controversy about homeschooling was in how the kangaroo mom was portreyed in the movie Horton Hears a Who. I don’t remember the books being offensive at all. They apparently had a political msg, but it was done in a more subtle way. Frankly, I don’t remember the issue of Pouch Schooling coming up in the book at all. I thought it was something they added for the movie. I could be wrong.
I pretty much learned to read with Dr. Suess’ Alphabet book! I entertained my children with Dr. Suess books as a homeschooling mom. I don’t remember anything negative regarding homeschoolers, but it’s been a long time.
I haven’t read them in many years!
The Lorax was my favorite Dr. Seuss story of all time. It came out in 1971 and I was big on conservation at the time. It’s about preserving nature and fighting the onslaught of industrialization. Of course, I also liked the knitted thneeds. LOL I still read Dr. Seuss. I will never lose my love for it. I read it to my little sister and my kids, too, many, many years apart. To me, it is timeless stuff. “I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees, which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please!”
